* NeverLiveItDown: Luke "attraction" to Leia is confined mostly to this film and Splinter of the Mind's Eye and never goes anywhere, but in the eye of popular culture he will always be the butt of incest jokes.

* SpecialEffectFailure:SpecialEffectFailure: Inevitable, considering the film was produced on such a low budget and nobody expected it to be such a hit, though many of the effects are shockingly good in spite of this.



%%*** As was a matte painting of a hallway and most of the optical lines around the ships.

Added DiffLines:

** Just before the TIE fighter attack on the falcon, there's two instances of the ship being hit back to back...except instead of being the usual "shaking the set" effect (where the set itself is mechanically shaken), they just "vibrate" the focus of the image back and forth in a very unconvincing manner, exactly the same way a PanAndScan effect would be done.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Vader is much more openly angry in this movie as opposed to the TranquilFury he displays in later films.

** The wingman who flies on Vader's left somehow manages to escape blame for his flub. Han Solo only shot one of Vader's wingmen - the other one simply overreacted to Han's surprise attack and ''crashed his TIE Fighter into Vader's of his own accord''. Later edits changed it so that Han shot both of them, glancing the second wingman and making him swerve into Vader.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The fact that Lucas acted shocked and disappointed that fans would actually prefer "Han shot first", and then went on to assert that the original version basically has Han shoot Greedo in cold blood (or...something). George's attitude has led to analogies being made to the "gun control" debate of today.

** When's she brought to Grand Moff Tarkin, Leia humorously tells him, "I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash." In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', [[GoGoEnslavement Leia is enslaved by Jabba the Hutt, which involves being put on a literal leash]]. The film's further revelation that she's Vader's daughter actually makes it a bit amusing.

** A failure first seen in the special editions was the use of a (very poor) CGI Jaba the Hutt in one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCdZ11BM-6Y previously deleted]] scene. That particular model was replaced in the 2004 edition with the one used in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''.
